Your Elysium's main composition is silicone with ABS plastic and is Hypo-allergenic / Latex-free / Non-porous / and Phthalates-free.
Silicone is going to give you a silky, velvety feel to the main attraction of the vibrator. This will feel like satin to the skin and like a dream. It has always been my experience that silicone adds to the stimulation to a play session because of the smooth texture, but that is my personal opinion. There is a tiny bit of "squishy" feel to this toy which I love. It helps to give that feel of flesh. Within the center of the dildo it is very nice and firm so no need to be gentle - perfect for thrusting if you like. You're not going to have a lot of "give" with this toy like you might with others.
As far as any obtrusive smells go, there were none to be noticed. It had a generous charge ready once taken out of the package and was ready for a brief trial run. Simply give it a good cleaning, grab a good amount of water based lube to get you started, and you are set.
Beginner and Advanced users alike are all welcome to feel the love of this toy and thoroughly enjoy what it has to offer.
I found the Elysium to be a fun and wavy new addition to my toy box. I'm not typically a Size Queen so I do need to touch on this topic first. We are dealing with a good sized toy here, one not for the faint of hearts, one that is intended to Get The Job Done. If you love size, this is absolutely for you. If you are adventurous and ready to try new things with a little bit of size in mind, go for it! Beginners, do be a little cautious as you are going for some girth here, but, it is going to be worth it's weight in gold if you can tame this beast. The wavy design actually helps break down the size a bit and made it easier for me to take and adjust to. I have faith in those wanting to test drive it. He's not the biggest toy on the market, after all.
The actual wavy design was created to massage every nook and cranny of a woman's inner channel. Thank you, to the person who created this feature! I'm confident it reached nearly every nerve ending within. I believe the motor is within the center. The vibrations are so strong and intense, no matter the pattern you choose, you can feel the vibrations from base to tip. Again, thank you, to the person who designed Elysium! Bravo! The bulbous head is amazing and multifunctional. Not only does it hit the intended G-Spot with perfection but it also can be used as a warm up on the clitoris.
When looking at this dildo it is obvious as to what it is so there is no denying it's purpose. I wouldn't call it discreet at all. If you travel with it you might keep that in mind. Also, keep in mind that the material will collect lint. It's not a huge deal. Just rinse it off once you reach your destination.
This dildo was crafted perfectly to my liking. Being that I'm petite, and this is a large toy, it still fit very nicely in my hand. The function button is very easy to hit and change up the pace when needed. At the same time, it's a solid button, so it's not going to accidentally get hit and change what you are currently enjoying in your moment of ecstasy. This easily became my new Go To toy.
There are 10 dynamic vibration rhythms to choose from! There are enough patterns and options to keep your toes curling, your mind guessing what comes next when you press that little button, and enough flavor for even the pickiest toy enthusiast.
1. Vibrate (high)
2. Vibrate (medium)
3. Vibrate (low)
4. Gradient Burst
5. Intermittent Rumble
7. Inta-Surge (with a break)
8. Even Stop Rumble
9. Roller Coaster Spurt
Control type: Push Button easy ON/OFF with LED
Powered By: Rechargeable / USB
First, when storing your silicone Elysium, please keep it from touching other silicone items. They just don't play well with others and the materials will get damaged. I usually keep mine in pouches, or just keep them on opposite sides of my toy box, or divided by non-silicone pieces.
Silicone is easily cleaned with antibacterial soap and water or, if you prefer, you could use your favorite toy cleaner - I love the cleaning wipes on Eden. It's also easily sterilized by wiping it down with a 10% bleach solution but, please don't attempt to boil this one or throw it in your dishwasher as this will totally kill it!
Packaging was pretty basic with the standard clear, plastic, with insertable product detail. I can't complain or be enthusiastically in awe over it. I would say it would be your typical sex toy purchase packaging. You could keep everything stored in it if you chose. It takes a second to dig through the plastic so have your dildo ready for play prior to beginning. Since this is not a super high-tech toy it really doesn't require a lot of instruction. The lack of the finer detail really wasn't important. The information provided on the package is very basic. It tells you that your toy is silicone, ABS plastic, with 10 vibrating patterns, has a couple of standard common sense warnings, indicates it complies with European safety, and that's about it. All you need to do is plug it in, charge it, your good.
I'm not one to normally have "toy envy" or get caught up in the hype of the next latest and greatest of things on the market. I don't usually have high expectations when it comes to toys, I try to keep my expectations in check, my personal desires are kept under control, all in an effort to provide a well thought out and honest review for all my readers.
I will say that this gem rocked my world and had me screaming out in pure bliss. Enough to make me wonder why I ever put my own wants in a toy aside for the sake of a review. After all, there was something that appealed to me to begin with to make me say YES to the Elysium to begin with. Right? For me, I have to say, it was the aesthetics that first had me wanting more--desiring to experience the feel of what it was going to offer. It now holds a very special place in my toy chest above all the rest. I'm sorry to say that all the other toys are now taking a very sad back seat to this one at the moment.
After being a little surprised by the appearance of this dildo - the size had me gaping a bit since I am no Size Queen - a small wicked smile crept over my face. I realized that it was definitely going to be fun experimenting with this toy. I would say this is probably one of the larger of my arsenal but I was eager. I had full intentions of waiting it out until the weekend, but to be honest, it was the cheerful shade of pink that drew me in and had me wanting to take it for a spin much sooner. Rushing to my bedroom, I clicked the on button to see how much power I was going to be working with since it hadn't had a full charge yet, and I was happy to see there was enough to get my curiosity sated.
Running my hand up and down the smooth exterior, it felt amazing. So soft and silky, just a dream in waiting. Once lubed, it was play time. The bulbous head is perfect for a nice warm up session to get you primed and ready. Normally, I would go nice and slow but not with Elysium. It's almost impossible to do anything slow with the powerful vibrations that this thing puts out. So, fast and powerful it was. Elysium took me to my breaking point so fast, faster than any other toy I have. I had to switch gears and go straight to insertion. From there, it was an almost instant climax! The strong sensations hit in all the right places so it's near impossible to hold off.
Since the size is a little on the large size it does take a minute to adjust to. The wavy pattern of the dildo does actually help in the process, which I was so thankful for. I was so greedy, wanting to get right to business, but size kept me at a slower pace even though my nerve endings were all screaming for a release. Size and all, this is my go to toy right now! Yes, I am crushing on it that much. There are so many patterns to play with and enjoy. Each one is just as enjoyable as the last.
My one bit of care advice on this one is to watch material around it when storing it or if you are having play time and you lay it down. It did tend to grab on to a little bit of lint. So, I would keep it on a damp rag on the floor or just plan to not lay it down during play time until you know you won't be using it again. Then, when storing, you may need to rinse it off if you store your pieces in cloth pouches.
Another thing I would like to mention, this is not a water toy at all. So, no fun water activities with this guy. Other than that, it's a breeze to clean and take care of. Simple antibacterial soap and water will work wonders OR you can do your favorite toy cleaner from Eden.
